What we recommend instead
Big Bucks Bingo Verdict
Big Bucks Bingo definitely falls into the trap of template sites which don’t stand out. The only effort that has gone into making this site different is the (admittedly cool) logo. New players to online bingo might get some fun out of this site as a place to get started. There’s really nothing wrong with Big Bucks Bingo, but there’s also nothing attractive about it that you can’t get elsewhere.
Design & Usability
Big Bucks Bingo has a yellow colour scheme with ties in with their Wild West logo, which shows a mounted cowboy against a setting sun (which of course is a bingo ball). While this is a fun image… that’s it. There’s no other theming to the site, other than supposedly the big bucks you can win!
The site is easy enough to use, with clear sections for all the important things and a handy left side navigation bar in addition to the main bar. The site is lacking in anything special visually, but it scores well for being a solid design with useful touches.
Software & Gameplay
The Big Bucks Bingo software is pretty nippy and should run on most machines. The bingo game is quite basic, but you do get a raft of options for things like colours and sounds, plus chat has plenty of little features.
This is very much a cheap and cheerful bingo game. There’s nothing special related to the site theme. Hosts are easy to find but the rooms seemed a little quiet, hopefully that’s just a matter of timing.
Safety & Security
There’s no rustling going on at Big Bucks Bingo, as they’re fully licensed and regulated by the Isle of Man Gambling Commission and UK Gambling Commission. You’ll also see that they have the iTech labs certification for a fair random number generator.
Payments & Withdrawals
Payment is processed on the account page at Big Bucks Bingo, no fiddling with pop-up windows. You get a pretty straightforward series of boxes and fields to fill in, which are nice and large. One strength of this setup is that you can see wagering requirements clearly before you deposit.
Payment methods accepted include a full set of credit and debit cards, plus PaySafeCard, Neteller and Boku Mobile Payments. A good set there, but PayPal would really top it off.
You can find your support contact options on most pages, down the left-hand side. These include the big three; live chat, email and a phone line, available 24/7. You can also use a helpdesk system where you submit a ticket explaining your issue, which is good for technical problems and anything non-urgent.
The support team are quick to respond and friendly. You can also find a full FAQ section on site.
Bonuses & Promotions
The welcome bonus at Big Bucks Bingo is the same as many Cozy bingo sites in 2017. This is a huge amount, a 500% cash match on your first deposit, 350% on your second and 300% on your third! You can claim huge amounts with this if you so desire, but remember you’ll need to wager the amounts four times over to be able to withdraw winnings. You can also claim £15 free before you even deposit, which is great for testing the site out a little.
Promotions here are standard to Cozy sites, but they do include some fun things like the Break-time Quizzer which is a chat quiz and various special jackpot games. Nothing unique or themed to cowboys, sadly.
There is a mobile explainer page on Big Bucks Bingo which is a bit odd but tells you what you need to know. The oddness comes from having four tabs for different phone types (plus ‘other’) which all have the exact same text. The site does not have an app in either major store, but you can access it via your mobile or tablet browser.
The site is nice and easy to use on mobile, but again all you get here is a template site that you’ll see from many others. On the plus side, you can claim another £15 when you sign up on mobile.
Variety & Originality
You have a fair variety at Big Bucks Bingo, including 90 ball, 80 ball, 75 ball and 30 ball. There are ten rooms with a mixture of ticket prices, down to a cheap 2p, plus a few rooms that open for special jackpots. Still, there’s nothing that actually reflects the site theme or isn’t seen elsewhere.
When it comes to slots you get much the same, a good selection of standard quality. Nothing wrong here, but also nothing amazing. Check out Dog ‘n’ Roll for one of the better made games, with some fun features.
Loyalty & Rewards
The VIP programme at Big Bucks Bingo is the same as most Cozy sites; a four-tier system which starts at Silver and then goes Gold, VIP and SVIP. Rise through the ranks by depositing and earning loyalty points, which you can also convert back to cash. The promotions page mentions this but does not tell you what the benefits are… look in the FAQs.
All you really get are bigger deposit bonuses, which are useful of course but can just lead to spending more money. There’s no mention of special treatment, so this is a pretty standard offering.
